I am bidding on a redesign for a website.  The site was built using asp.  I am not familiar with asp.  Using ftp, will I be able to access all pages of site to grab current content or is it database driven?

yes, if you have access to FTP, you'll be able to access the asp files.  Chances are there'll be a database involved as well, asp is used to create dynamic pages. If you're familiar with any other web development language, such as PHP, .NET, etc, ASP acts like that, though it's more like PHP than .NET, but the overall concept is the same, fetch data from a database to display a web page.

feel free to ask any other questions if you have them

in short, yes.

designing static html pages (web design) is far different from working with dynamic web pages (web development). one isn't better than the other, they're just two different methods when working on the web.

There are countless tutorials out there, I would start with w3schools and CodeAcademy if you're serious about learning it. You can also post specific questions here, that's part of how I learned to do web development.

If you're doing a bid, I would be up front with the client about your strengths and weaknesses. Sell your design skills (assuming you're good at it), but tell them you don't have asp experience, but are eager to learn in. There's nothing worse than a web developer that over-promises :)
